Well, yes. But, if I'm not mistaken, to keep unwanted stuff from finding
its way into the main ini, what Jody did is to do a ^!ProginiLoad prior to
the clip's ending (which loads the main -- unaltered at this point -- ini --
when there's no value after the command).
(**oops, that's what it is -- this is not a situation of only one clip and
reverting/load the main ini before the one clip ends**). Instead, this is a
clip and then another clip (2 clips). (I knew I had something crossed
Oh those cross pollinating ini files.
Probably could incorporate into these clips to also to backup the main ini
before loading other ini
Then, offer as a choice to restore the main ini from backup in the case of
user forgets/error in useage (as in shutdown Notetab with other.ini values
still in vogue).

Some people start Notetab (command line ini optional parameter) with
alternates of multiple ini's
They do it as an easy way to organize/contain their projects. Notetab just
opens with those 30 files from project 1 (my_proj1.ini); NTB opens with
those 25 files from project 2 (my_proj2.ini); etc. etc.
I wonder if the same file can be simultaneously open and edited in both of 2
instances of Notetab (different ini's of course) -- I've never tried this.
If so, conceivably could have different configs, in each of the two Notetabs
and switch between the two according to which config is wanted at the
moment. But I suppose it might be confusing to try and operate in this way
Well, whatever. I'm likely musing more so than doing anything else.
If Notetab had a way to, upon closing, warn the user given if another ini's
values are currently in vogue and yes/no to discard rather than save these "
other.ini" values (puts a stop to the cross pollinating of ini files).
